A robust platform that enables our clients to do almost anything

What is our primary use case?

Due to COVID-19, almost all of our customers are buying the virtual edition now. Our customers use this solution for connecting people from home to the office. APM is security encrypted and allows them to create an SSO (through a third-party) so they can access just about anything they could from their office computer, under normal circumstances. Everything is in one portal, including your SAS application and on-premise application.

Pros and Cons

  • "Our customers have never complained about the stability"
  • "Cloud services are something that F5 Access Policy Manager could do better"

What other advice do I have?

Due to a bug issue, some customers felt they needed to upgrade to protect themselves from hackers. Thankfully, our security vendors advised us on this issue. They told us the risks and spent a few days updating our software. For this reason, they are a vendor I can trust. Honesty is important because there are a lot of allocation websites, personal information, and data at stake. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give F5 Access Policy Manager a rating of nine.
